How Fellows and Honorary Fellows are elected

Fellows and Honorary Fellows are elected to our Academy annually. Nominations are made by other Fellows or senior office-holders of our Member Organisations and each nomination can remain active for five years. Each year nominations are short-listed by evaluation panels and then selected for election by the Fellowship Selection Committee.

The 2020 round is now open and please note that the closing date for the round is 30 June.

If you wish to make a new nomination can you please advise us as soon as possible (academy@royalsociety.org.nz) and we will send you a URL to access the web portal.
